Who would you want to keep?

I'm new on here and I didn't see a thread about this, but if there is one, feel free to delete this.

From the Oilers current roster, who would you say you'd want to keep or is untouchable?

For me, I'd say:
Ales Hemsky
Gilbert Brule
Sam Ganger
Ladislav Smid
Dustin Penner

That's about it.

Fixed it for you.

Smid, Gagner, Hemsky, Penner, Brule, Visnovsky, Stortini, Stone, and Potulny. I don't care if any of the rest are traded.

Like to see back

Penner
Hemsky
Gagner

Smid
Visnovsky

Wouldn't be complaining if they're still around

Pouliot
Pisani
Stortini
Jacques
Stone
Cogliano
Gilbert
Souray (zero point in trading him when his value's this low)

& Khabibulin... I know most people's opinions of him are kinda low because of the injury history, but I like him with the team when our forwards start playing well and until we have a alternative bona-fide starter.

I'd like to keep Visnovsky as well. I just can't see the Oilers keeping him. It would be nice to get another first round pick and try and get a D man. This is probably reaching, but I've heard Boston has interest in Visnovsky. If we could package him up for the Toronto 1st round or even the Boston 1st round, I'd probably go for that.

The Oilers won't be trading Visnovsky. Boston will not be trading Toronto's 1st round pick. They've said that over and over and over and over again. I don't see Visnovsky being traded and if he were, draft picks won't do it. It has to be an overpayment that the Oilers would accept it.

Yeah, imagine drafting Hall and Niderreiter(sp)

Visnovsky
Smid
Hemsky
Gagner
Brule
Those are the only ones I WOULD NOT trade. Obviously not everyone else would move because fielding a team with only 4 returnees is unrealistic.

I don't really want to see these guys back though:
JFJ
Moreau (although his play lately makes me reconsider...)
Staios
POS
Nilsson
Souray (because of the trade value and contract)

You would seriously be upset if we moved Penner? penner is what is wrong with this team. No MOTIVATION, it is contagious.

MPS, Eberle and that 1st round pick are the only things I don't want being traded, the rest should be available.

If you are saying Gagner should be made available, then I would think that MPS - Eberle and the first this season should also be available.

We know Gagner has improved every season thus far. We are getting glimpses of his top end talent that will soon come to be.

MPS - Eberle and our first this year haven't played a lick of NHL games. We have no idea how good or bad they are going to be.

If Pittsburgh offers up Malkin at the draft and wanted MPS and Eberle along with Hemsky, would you do the deal?

Nope. Change Hemsky for someone else. They'd need a Malkin to play with Hemsky not trade him to get him. If it costs Hemsky, the Oilers decline.

Everyone should be available for the right price, but it would take a huge over payment for me to move Hemsky, Gagner, MPS, Eberle, or Hall/Seguin.

Tough to get: excluding MPS, Eberle and the 1st as they are current roster
Hemsky
Gagner
Penner
Smid
Visnovsky

Prefer to see back:
one/both of Cogliano/Brule
one/both of Gilbert/Grebeshkov
one/both of Pouliot/Potulny

LOL

We're a last place team. We're as bad as the expansion teams were back in the 90's.

The only untouchable is our #1 pick.

Any trade that will make us a better team in 3 years, we make. That includes trading guys like Hemsky Penner Smid if the returns are guys like Tavares, Stamkos, or Doughty.

There's no untradeable players in this league, with the exceptions of Crosby Ovechkin or Malkin (as long as they are not in the final years of their contract).
